EmacsWiki on W3m and E23


emacs/web integration with w3m one person’s journey. I followed his notes on building (except for the packaging thing), and it worked -- although 4 files failed to byte-compile for me. octet.el, mime-w3m.el, w3m-ucs.el as he referenced, as well as mew-w3m.el. It works again, happy day! Although bullets are gone again....



MOSTLY works -- still some strangeness.



not in a couple of years? Google changed something, th’ bums.


UPDATE: use mobile version - also reports that the HTML mode works, although I could not replicate success. Also see for other mobile apps.




Getting and building

The instructions at w3m homepage didn’t work for me -- I had to add the w3m. after the @

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@w3m.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/w3m login
(hit Enter to the password request)
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@w3mcvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/w3m checkout w3m


don’t forget to get gc from somewhere
